Sadly, most students of biblical Hebrew quit their studies at the most crucial moments the transition from language basics to biblical exegesis. But you can flourish early on and progress further if you learn from the outset to read and explain biblical texts effectively.

This is the best teaching grammar of biblical Hebrew available today. It has no rival. . . .

This is the ideal textbook for students in colleges and seminaries who are preparing for Christian ministry.

Here's the book I wish I had been given, and from which I wish I had been instructed, when I was a student of Hebrew.

—Timothy Keller, founding pastor, Redeemer Presbyterian Church

Fullilove has found ways to make the language so accessible and yet filled with such accuracy that many who thought Hebrew was beyond their reach will find it readily and comfortably right at hand.
